Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of riding in the limowith Deepak Chopra, on his way to speak at the IONSconference in Crystal City, Arlington, Virginia. And thiswas one of the topics that morning with everyone in the car.We tossed back and forth the characteristics of a miracleand all the other angles. Although it was just one of manyinteresting conversations I enjoyed that week, this oneinstantly changed my life.
When we got closer to the hotel, the car grew quiet exceptfor the purring of the engine. Deepak was meditating, and Ijoyously recorded the wisdom of our conversation and allthat was churning inside of me.
In big bold letters, "If I want to have a miracle, be thatmiracle," flowed from my pen. I stopped, stunned. Icouldn't continue writing nor look up. Tears quietly rolleddown my cheek. The message was so powerful it turned into amuffled sob. My skin tingled and my cheeks flushed withembarrassment even though I wasn't sure who, if anyone, waswatching me.
A hand touched my shoulder. Our eyes met. The corners ofDeepak's eyes were watery too. I knew in that instant hereceived the same message. No words were exchanged just anod from him. Later that day, in his stage presentation, hediscussed this event incognito.
The power of joined energy is a miracle. The power of ourown energy is a miracle waiting for a decision to happen.It begins with our decision. We have the power of miracles.
Miracles take action. It takes generosity. It takesselfishness. It takes a second, a minute, or ten minutes.The bottom line is:
"If you want to have a miracle, be that miracle."
Since this beautiful moment of tying energy this samemessage, same wording, has repeated itself in a book, andother places. Even though they weren't as powerful as thatmoment when our eyes locked, it still shows that we need tohear it, be reminded of it, consistently until we decide toinherent it into our daily beliefs and life.
This message doesn't just work during the holiday season.It is there for our choice every waking moment. You are thetree that lives in the forest and help the forest be aforest. It is the tree that falls hard in the forest butgently ripples into the rest of the world.
The miracles you create in the check out line at the grocerystore with people in front of you, behind you, and thecashier, are miracles. don't just wish for miracles. Bethat miracle, everyday, every second, and it begins with anew way of looking at yourself. Be a miracle to yourselfand let it ripple out. Stand tall, walk like the miracleyou are. Let it touch everyone today, tomorrow, next year,and the year after. The world is changing because ofmiracles. Be that miracle.
